Meet our first Dragon Slayer, Marley. Doesn't she look perfect for the job? Long claws to pierce directly through tough dragon scales and lots of extra skin to shield her from fiery breath.
Earlier last month, I asked Dog a Day fans to submit candidates for a dragon painting concept - you can see the entrants over on the studio Facebook page. It was a very difficult decision - so many wonderful options! I immediately decided that what was to be one painting needed to become a series.
And little Marley will be the first muse for the first Dragon Slayer painting, a piece I will start later this week (it's due at the gallery in 10 days! yikes!).
I stretched and primed a large canvas this afternoon, getting myself ready to invite her and her nemesis into the studio. Once I finish Mya.
(And I do see the copyright on this photo - rest assured I have Judy Wood's permission. I never paint from photos I have not taken without express permission of the photographer.)
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
JUST ANNOUNCED!! PAINTING WORKSHOP: Saturday, October 8th, at the Orion Art Center in Lake Orion MICHIGAN, for reservations call 248-693-4986
